High School Students Make 3D Printed Hand For Toddler

Science / Tech

Technology continues to push forward and change the lives of us all, but one little boy in particular felt the impact in a special way. Little Kaedon Olsen was born without his right hand due to a complication called Amniotic Band Syndrome. Kaedon’s mother had heard of a local High School using a 3D printer to make things like iPhone cases and other small projects so she approached them about making a 3D printed hand for her son. With a mission, some heart, and a whole lot of determination the computer science students at Bernham High School in Texas made that hand for little Kaedon. Watch the video below for their story.

This story is doubly impressive in that we can now do this with today’s technology and the fact this was done by a group of high school computer science students. This story gives me hope for the kids of the future, it’s so great to see them using technology and science to help others in the most rewarding ways. These great kids gave little Kaedon a gift he’ll never forget and gave his mom a joy she’ll cherish forever. Pretty awesome stuff Bernham High!
